Thank you to my 50 followers. I appreciate your commitment.
This New Year has been a resting period for me. I apologize that the blog has been less active, and this can be expected for the next two months.
Opportunities have come up with my edible company, and I am currently trying to settle on a name that captures my brand and stands out from the crowd. Since we also offer salves.
We have sold out of products at Emerald Genetics/ Cal Sole, and our next harvest is in February. We will have on the shelves Gelato 25/ Dosido and OG. Sales and building client relationships have proven to be a challenge. I must constantly reevaluate why our product stands out and what we offer that no one else does. As I’ve been told, growing cannabis in Humboldt county isn’t enough. Even though we can’t hold onto product, I am still establishing myself as a sales face for Cal Sole. You can find Emerald Genetic Products at 101 M Street Dispensary inc. in Crescent City.
I am taking a writing course with my favorite writer Francesca Lia Block. This is the real secret my blog is being put on hold. I write ten pages a week, and I answer some questions that help me explore my characters and also myself as a writer. I then review my peer’s work and then meet on Sundays to review our pieces. It has been a dream of mine to take this course and I am very thankful to be under her guidance.
Little Lost Forest is working on getting its business license and signing up for upcoming fairs. Competing with the artists in Humboldt county takes work. All the talented people seem to come out of the woodwork to live here! So I am going strong with my Etsy and will update it soon.
My best friend, who you might be familiar with, Orion, moved in. He is going to Cal Poly and working on a social worker degree. He will be helping me with the edibles and also with the children.
My husband and I have talked about doing more things together, but we still need to do actually do them. We spent many years getting stable enough to have a child while raising our oldest. We don’t have a lot of time with each other… alone. For now, it is what it is, but since I talk about marriage and relationships in this blog, this is a genuine piece of my life. I miss having “fun” with my partner, like going on car rides along the coast or spending time together at the beach without the kids.
Please take a second to reflect on how you have come into the New Year. Reflect on all the progress you’ve made in the past fifteen days and the goals you have set in place for the rest of the year. Your goals are attainable.
I hope that you are going through the New Year with ease. Enjoy the rain Humboldt County.

Life can be a struggle when your developing your business, trying to raise children and trying to maintain a happy, strong marriage. There has to be a lot of compromise on both parties. You experienced that when you were young watching your father struggling to be successful He made it and so will you.
Your partner and children have to understand your goals and support your dreams. Life is about dreams and working hard to achieve them.
Nobody in life has been successful without sacrifice and dedication to fulfill your destiny. Never give up on your goals. Failure breeds success Nobody starts out successful. When you get knocked down its just a lesson on how to be stronger and smarter on your next try.
You’ve come a long way and you have the drive of your father to never give up until you have reached your goal or level of happiness. Always stay calm, be professional, be humble and never think you know it all. There is always something more to learn. Respect everyone. The old saying is “You meet the same people moving up the ladder as you will going down the ladder”
I’ve been thinking about my comment last night and have to say there is nothing more important than family. Life is trying your best to keep your family together. So be careful about the decisions you make balancing family and business. Don’t make a decision you might regret later. We cannot change decisions made in the past. That said, your heart will tell you the direction you should take in life.
